When Did You Make Your First Dollar?

Postby jaggiegill » Thu Jul 05, 2007 4:11 pm

I remember the first time I opened up a Clickbank account and was excited to become an affiliate marketer way back in the days, my first sale was for a seized car website. I got $23 dollars on my first sale using only ppc (Google Adwords) spending a mere $4 to advertise! I thought that was pretty good, I have to thank Perry Marshall , and the Adwords Made Easy Ebook for helping me out!

So enough of me, tell me when you guys first experienced your first at home income check and what did you do to get it?

I made my first doolar without even realizing it.

I placed an affiliate link in a long-gone little newsletter I was sending to perhaps 20 people and I received a check weeks later. It really took me by surprise!

Granted, it was a NICE surprise... 8)

My first dollar online was on ebay. I don't remember for what or the year (circa 1997-1998) but I do remember feeling very happy about it. :lol:

The first check that came in the mail and I could actually
hold in my hand was last century.

It was only $21.02 but it felt like a million dollars. I didn't
cash it for months. Sometimes I would hold it in my hands
for hours, looking at it and just dreaming amd imaging.

It was a real motivator to come home from work and see
the check laying on my "home business" desk.

Two years later I told the boss to take his job and shove
it because I was retiring. The look on his face was as they
say in the Mastercard commercial "priceless"

My first only dollar came about 10 or so years ago. But my first home-based biz dollar came long before there was an eCommerce.

I sell promotional advertising, and in trying to get rid of an insurance agent, I wound up selling her an order of business cards. Twenty-three years later, I'm still selling promotional advertising from home, but I don't do business cards as a rule anymore.

That little $30 card order has grown into a quarter-million dollar annual sales volume that is my family's sole source of income.

Hello

I made my first dollar from Global Domains, and am still doing it today!

I found the program, via payit4profits.

I just spotted my typo -

My first "only" dollar, should read, My first "online" dollar. And there have been many since then, but still nothing like my offline sales.

I remember when I made my first dollar.
My first check from google adsense was for $1.07
I received it in Jan of 2001. I thought it was so awesome I received a check from google for $1.07 I framed it and never cashed it.
Last month I finally reached the $100 payout threshold and should be getting a bigger check from google next month!!!

In March of '06 I earned my first dollar via Adsense- it was so thrilling; I used to log into my Adsense account all day long!
